Seahawks Earn 52-36 Shootout Win At Bryant Behind Fulse, Linta


Smithfield, RI – Senior preseason All-American running back Ryan Fulse ran for 218 yards on 36 carries and three touchdowns, and added a fourth receiving, while fifth-year senior quarterback T.J. Lintapassed for 167 yards and three scores in leading the Wagner football team to a 52-36 victory at Bryant on Saturday. In snapping a three-game losing streak to Bryant, the Seahawks improve to 3-7 on the season, 2-3 in the Northeast Conference (NEC) while the Bulldogs fall to 6-4 overall and 3-3 in league play. For Fulse, today's effort was the third 200-yard rushing game of his career, with two of those efforts coming against Bryant. In last season's meeting on Staten Island, Fulse rumbled for a then career-high 228 yards on 25 carries, a mark he bettered in the 2018 season-opening win over Bowie State when he totaled 271 yards on the ground. Wagner jumped out to an early 17-0 lead on a pair of short Fulse TD runs, each of which capped long drives, that were sandwiched around a 28-yard field goal by sophomore Eric Silvester.
